A flight attendant giving the safety talk somewhere other than an airplane is always a good gag, and (Washington-area) Metrorail has taken that track with its latest YouTube offering.
In “If Trains were Planes,” a computer-generated attendant gives a rundown on some of Metro’s rules and suggestions—no eating, no smoking, move to the center of the car, etc.—in the deadpan style of her airborne colleagues.
“While humorous in tone, the video also delivers important safety messages,” Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority said in a statement. “It reminds riders not to block train doors, and draws attention to the emergency exits and emergency evacuation instructions posted inside rail cars. In the event of an emergency, ‘remain calm and listen to crew member instructions,’ the flight attendant says.”
